Shiny Hair Don’t Care!

I’m bringing something a little out of the ordinary to the blog today- my hair straightening routine! I’ve gotten a lot of questions lately from my clients and fellow style bloggers about how I get my naturally curly hair so straight and shiny, and even though I’m not a beauty blogger I’m committed to sharing tips & tricks that will have you looking the very best YOU! I also recently received a new flat iron that has taken my straightening game to the next level!!

The Irresistible Me Diamond StraightenerΒ has tremendously shortened the time it has always taken me to flat iron my hair after blowing out. It also heats up in less than 15 seconds, and has an auto shut-off after 30 minutes. You wouldn’t believe how many times I have left my old iron on by accident and left the house…and then freaked out hours later thinking it might catch fire and burn our house down! Lol {funny now but not then}

My new straightener features unique ‘DIAMOND Hi-Tech’ which coats the ceramic plates with crushed diamond particles. This keeps all of our natural hair oils, color, and moisture in. My hair feels so healthy and shiny after flat ironing, and I truly believe it’s contributing to my hair remaining tamed through this crazy summer humidity…especially when I’m doing outdoor photo shoots for hours on end!

I use very little product when styling with my flat iron because my hair gets greasy FAST, and can easily feel weighed down! My only two go-to products are the CHI Deep Brilliance Silk Reflection serum (for heat protection and major shine) and the Cantu Shea Butter Edge Stay Gel (to tame those pesky flyaways).IMG_20160828_203656

Here’s a photo recap of how my routine goes down- total time just 35 minutes including blow dry {from curly} and straighten! I use just a dime-sized amount of serum, and flat iron in sections from the back to the front. Occasionally I’ll curl my hair with the flat iron as well for a fuller, wavy look that typically lasts 2-3 days.

I hope this was helpful, and if you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment below and I’ll be sure to respond!

Fashionably Yours,

Aliya
